I have a Acer 4500 Laptop.... It had a locked harddrive and bios so I reset the bios by unplugging the bios battery and it worked... Installed new harddrive and got windows installed... I then started having problems with it shutting down around 30-40 percent of installing windows... So I got frustrated and decided that maybe it was a cooling issue.. So I got the biggest box fan I could find in my house and turned it on and it got through the install... So Now Im having similar problems with it... After about 1 hour of use the screen goes black and the PC is still on, Like the lights and everything are on but the screen is black.... I then have to hold down the power button to get it to turn off. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks
